Where Servers Dare To Be Different!™

Quake III - Server Side

Here are the options we use in K|W Simply the Best. Not all settings are reveled here. This is just to point you in the right direction.

First thing required is you must set up a shortcut and place it in one of two places.
1 On your Desktop or
2 in the "startup" folder of the account you will use to host your Q3A server.
Within this shortcut, you need to state the following options to get your dedicated quake 3 server started. Your shortcut should look EXACTLY like this:
"X:\QUAKE III ARENA\quake3.exe" +set dedicated 2 +exec yourconfig.cfg X = the hard drive you installed Quake III Arena

Make sure the contents located here on this page are stored in "\Quake III Arena\BASEQ3" called yourconfig.cfg or what ever you name the .cfg file and where ever you installed Quake III Arena.

Simply the Best

K|W server(s) have been running since 1996 and have set the standards in most areas. As told by our players we never settle for anything less, we only expect "Simply the Best." We've been around long enough to know we raised the bar over the past TWO decades!
